This quick-action game is a race to play all of one's cards. There are no turns; a card may be played as soon as a player determines it meets requirements. The game begins with one card placed face up in the center of the table to create the "center pile" upon which all cards will be played.

The remaining cards are dealt face down to all players so each has the same number of cards, which become their personal draw pile. Each card shows a yellow number from 1 to 10, and a plus or minus number, 1, 2 or 3.

If the card on the center pile has a yellow number 5 and a + number of 1, any card with a yellow number 4 (5-1=4) or 6 (5+1=6) may be played. The first player to play all of his or her cards wins. Testers were pleasantly surprised to see how the options for play kept changing.
